15) PLEASE READ BEFORE HIRING A NANNY (California)
In the past few years nannies have gotten spoiled rotten by the rich. I have had about 10 nannies since baby was born and even the best of them took the life out of me and my family.
I’m not super clean and tried to be extremely nice give them valuable gifts, treat them like family and they still spit at the hands that feed them!!!
They stole my camera with all the baby pics, always lying , sweeping dirt under the rug, disorganize the house so we can’t find anything , stood me up when I need to go work - lying they were on the way... even hitting the baby because they think some rich lady can pay them more.
The sad thing is when we spoil them the single or working mothers that really need them are compromised the most in society
Why are they charging 10$ hr? I mean even if they speak English. Even if you went to school for 2 yrs for degree, you probably won’t make $10+ after taxes. I can get someone with degrees who teaches kids French for the price they want.
DON’T FORGET, they don’t pay taxes and you can’t write them off your taxes either because we pay them cash. That means you’re actually paying them about $20 an hour.

You do this because they have trained us well. They are united and teach each other tricks so YOU don’t get spoiled even though you paying them and they to show you who is the boss. All the moms are afraid of their nanny!!!
Also they are not afraid because the maid services take them back even after you inform them that they stole or hit a baby.
Parents, lets stand up and unite like them!!!
1. We are their employer and the only way to get them to do their job is treat them like an employee not a friend who is doing you a FAVOR. Interview and show the work in a proffessional strict manner.
2. Don’t pay them more then minimum wage AFTER TAXES, it’s about 5$. Let them know they don’t pat taxes and you can’t write them off your taxes either.
3. Always leave yourself a 1 wk deposit that they lose if they lie to your face and don’t show up!!!! This way they stop playing games and training us.
4. They couldn't make a restaurant manager do the dishes with them why should we? If you end up helping them take it off their salary and tip. They don’t get paid to HELP us they come to do THEIR job, e have enough to do. let them know from the start you are their boss not the opposite
5. If you have too much money to give them use maids with degrees and skills... those are priceless - but please don’t overpay and spoil the under skilled nannies for the single working moms that really need them.
6. Get their prints, pictures and address. If they steal or abuse call the police and post their info and pics to let us know. Be assertive not passive it will only feed the beast.
7. Let the Maid Services know what you will do if they take them back.
8. Put hidden cameras if you can and don’t be intimidated because they are working with your kids. The more we spoil them the worse the abuse will be when they don’t get what they want.
Treat them like you would a bad teacher. They are replaceable and they know it. They only respect when they fear. This will give single and working moms the chance to be financially independent and contribute to society. This shouldn't cost us an arm and a leg.
You are also helping them learn not to spit in the hands that feed them and be professional. With this attitude they will never make it in anything in America or anywhere.
Thanks,
Desperate Mom

Need someone who is punctual, reliable, patient, good with children, and has reliable transportation.

Will be responsible for the following:
Tuesdays & Thursdays- pick up my 3 yr. old from preschool in Cypress (Moody & Ball) then pick up my 5 yr. old from school (Moody & La Palma Ave.). Bring girls to my home in Cypress and help tidy up/light housework while they play.

* Response from angry CL reader:

17) RE: need female 3x a week to help w/children & light houseclean (California)
I want you to drive my two kids to different locations, and then pick them up at different locations. And with all your extra time left, I want you to do light housework, My pay is a whopping $85.00 a week, meaning, I want you to work slightly over 8 hours, not compensate you for gas and disorganize your whole day, while helping me out. It's very obvious that I do not really care about other's feelings, because the most important thing to me is to let people know my brother is in law inforcement, and if I was really intune with reality, I would understand that all hardworking individuals out there bustin their fannies to make ends meet could give a flyin rip that your brother is a cop. You need a reality check my dear, get your head out of the sand, this is 2010. If you really think someone is a whacko, run a check on them before you hire them, you don't have to tell them you're going to do this, intimidation is for weaklings. I'm always amazed the people with the biggest, scariest, long list of to do's, is the people that are so cheap, they rub a nichel till the buffalo sqeals. You'll get someone for your price, but they'll either be extremely tired and unmotivated because they work too hard, and/or rip you off blind while your back is turned, because they know you are cheap!

23) Need a modern day Mary Poppins (California)
The Basics:
Need someone to care for my 3 year old son, in my home. We live at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac in a very good neighborhood in Plumas Lake. My son is a very sweet, very loving & active little boy, who has been "labeled" hyperactive by his physician, we are working through this as much as possible with a low sugar diet and natural supplements. We have tried the traditional daycare option, but it has not worked out. His physician recommended exploring the option of finding a nanny, so here we are! I need someone who is patient and can handle strong-willed children well. My son does best with environments with which is familiar and comfortable, thus being another factor supporting my decision to seek a nanny.
I would require care be provided Monday - Friday from about 7:30 a.m. until I get home from work at 5:15 p.m.. My place of employment is 10 minutes away, so I would be close by if ever needed. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask!

Not sure what happened but CL-WTF would not split up... so until I can figure out why... just read and leave your comments as you normally would for any other Article. Thanks!

East Bay Nanny said...

#15 - and she wonders why she's gone through so many nannies so fast. Oh that's right, they're all "spoiled." Yeah, I'd get spoiled too working for minimum wage for such a hateful woman.

lol said...

A healthy cock is really important. lol

please send links said...

I have a request for the blog administrators: Please please please start sending links to the CLWTF section to the people listed in this feature. They need to know how ridiculous they sound. They sound like they want slaves.

I just am disgusted at the distorted, disrespectful perception people have of the women who care for their children. It is truly horrifying.

Thank you for this blog.

Meme said...

Some of these don't sound too terrible for where I live...$30 a day for in home childcare is a pretty typical rate here. not for a live-in or housekeeping involved, etc though.

But seriously, some of these people are nuts....especially the ones who advertize on CL for a sitter that night. Why not just pick someone off the sex offender registry?!

Sadly, I bet the ones looking for a hooker who will also watch their kids probably get lots of responses.

Ima Nanny said...

Re: #18- You know, room & board exchanged for PT babysitting is not so bad in theory, but there must be a problem with how people calculate the value of such. I used to work 30 hours per week in NEW YORK and somehow it covered all my costs of living (including cell phone, transportation, etc), and then some. So getting only room and board for the same # of hours doesn't seem like a great deal for the nanny. Especially if she's a student and therefore has no time to work a second job.

MissMannah said...

I couldn't believe that woman writing the letter to the other parents "warning" them about hiring a nanny! Has anyone ever smacked her upside the head and told her how she is supposed to treat her employees? I will volunteer to do so!

CuriousDad said...

Miss Mannah,

Ill hold her still for you. Gah. Sad to say there are somepeople exactly like that in the business world, who become bosses. usually grind successive employees down. Yet cannot or will not be removed by the higher ups do to sheer intertia. Easier to make them replace a low level employee in then go through the bull a higher level boss takes.

Observer said...

#15 can't do math.
